An older gent


I managed to finish some "work, work" off today and really had the urge to paint something...I haven't painted anything in a very long time. I realised I don't actually own any paint but have got a tray of watercolours so watercolours were what I used. I decided to paint an old man, just because I like to draw old men so thought maybe it would be fun to paint one, and it was. I built up the colours and then as it needed a bit of definition went over to highlight some areas with my trusty quill and ink. Considering I don't ever work like this I don't think it's turned out too badly, there are a few errors but I think it's a good first try, I might start doing some more work like this.
